I want to protect the load space of the disco, and was wondering what people have done.

We will be loading tents, fridge and other typical camping and biking gear, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers,
AP

Two things I'd suggest is rubber matting from the likes of Clark Rubber, you can buy it by the metre and various widths or car/marine carpet again by the metre.

Clark rubber make a generic rubber mat for the load area, It's ridge pattern makes it very easy to trim to get a good fit. Best of all it was 1/4 the price of a custom mat.

I got one from supercheap which is a trim to fit one. Works perfectly and didn't cost much.

If you want to do it in style: Hatchbag - The Original Boot liner, Seat Covers, Pet Mats, Odour Controller, boot liner, boot liners, car boot liners, bootliner (http://www.hatchbag.co.uk/product.php?xProd=262)

Agree with the above. You can cut it to the exact shape and cheaper than a loadspace liner.
I used it for rubber mats for the rest of the D3, made templates and covered all the flor incl. under the seats. I just hve to brush out the dirt.:D

The rear mat is from Super Cheap. Fits perfectly, you just need to cut holes for the anchor points.

I used the same mat for the back seat and 3rd row of seats. For the second row I cut it to be one piece which is a bugger to get in and out but it works well. This leave an offcut perfect for the floor in front of the 3rd row.

Depends what you want...

If you want something cheap & cheerful then go with what the others have said. If you want something a little bit tastier... There's some genuine part options available ranging from purpose made rubber mats to slide out shelves for the boot (which I personally quite like as the D3 boot is rather deep!!).

Thanks all for the thoughts.

Given I recently purchased the D3, funds are rather stretched at the moment, so off to Supercheap I go.

Luckily the car already has the front and 2nd row mats, so it is really only the luggage area and third row.

Get this for a laugh, the closest super cheap is North Parramatta, so off I trot on Saturday (yes 43 degrees in the arvo), and drop into Supercheap. Repco was right next door...

So Supercheap $44.00, Repco $42.00.....

But here is the kicker, Repco at Hornsby (5 mins drive) didn't have it!

Now onto wiring up the traler plug so I don't have to remove the plastic from the bar and can retain the rear vision camera.

P.S. Just put in the phone controls on the steering wheel, the old man then get's mine for his S, talk about nervous cutting into the steering wheel surround. Now where is that aftermarket bluetooth setup.....
